Is Angelina Jolie ready to find a new man following her breakup with Brad Pitt? It has been over six months since Jolie filed for divorce and it sounds like the actress might be ready to enter the dating world once again. Will she find love in 2017?
An inside source told Hollywood Life that Jolie enjoys her new life as a single mom. With six kids to raise and a divorce to finalize, the actress is not in a hurry to find love. That doesn’t mean Jolie will turn away an opportunity, but dating is not on her radar at the moment.
“Angelina has been pretty much a full-time mom, which she loves,” the insider shared. “Angelina is really enjoying being single again, and says she is in no hurry to get into a serious relationship with anybody — this is her time to shine, and she’s loving it. Angelina is feeling more like her authentic self now than she has in years.”
The source added that Jolie’s everyday activities haven’t changed a lot since the breakup. The only difference is that she has more freedom and can make decisions without consulting Pitt, which she truly enjoys. The actress is feeling so empowered that Hello Magazine reports she recently purchased a $25 million estate in Los Angeles. The home is within walking distance from Pitt’s house and allows the kids more contact with their father.
“Angelina and the kids are enjoying the new house and loving the neighborhood,” the source claims.
Angelina Jolie’s new digs are in a rich community and includes six bedrooms, 10 baths, a huge backyard, a library, a swimming pool, and a workout area. The Maleficent star picked the mansion because of its proximity to Pitt’s home in Los Feliz, where most of her kids have called home for the majority of their lives.
In addition to the new house, Jolie was recently spotted taking her children to a baseball game at Dodgers Stadium. Jolie looked happier than she’s been in months and was even featured with Knox, Vivienne, and Pax on the jumbotron. While Jolie is clearly doing better, she has not commented on if she’ll start dating soon.
Meanwhile, Pitt recently opened up about his ugly divorce with Jolie. In an interview with GQ, Pitt admitted that it has been a rough few months and said that he finally understands what it means to love.
“If you love someone, set them free. Now I know what it means, by feeling it. It means to love without ownership. It means expecting nothing in return,” he explained. “It doesn’t mean [expletive] all to me until, you know. Until you live it… I worry about it more for my kids, being subjected to it, and their friends getting ideas from it. And, of course, it’s not done with any kind of delicacy or insight – it’s done to sell.”
Although Jolie’s love life seems open at the moment, Pitt has been linked to several different Hollywood stars. This includes Sienna Miller, whom Pitt worked alongside in the film, The Lost City of Z.
